Platform Integration

Because HCI will most likely be built on commodity hardware, enterprises have a greater ability to integrate numerous data platforms and virtual architectures than in the past.

Relying on integrated compute-storage-networking modules and offering rapid scalability, HCI has the potential to dramatically alter the IT landscape over the next decade.
